900th victory!

02.06.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Our Champ certainly put us through the mill today but he came through in 2hrs 59mins 6-1, 4-6, 2-6, 6-2, 6-3 against Gilles Simon.

 

From having one of his shots in the first set described as “defying the laws of physics” our Roger then went on to lose the next two sets. Simon came out playing attacking tennis in the second & third sets which is not his normal game. But it seemed as though Roger never really lost control of the match and patiently built his way through to the fourth set and again took control – perhaps it was the sight of Mirka with her head in her hands at one stage that spurred him on. On the way he passed yet another record completing his 900th tour win. Only Connors and Villas now hold more triumphs under their belts. It was also amazing to hear the support that Roger enjoyed from the French crowd even though he was playing a French competitor.

 

Our Champ is in action again next Tuesday when his opponent will be Jo Wilfried Tsonga in the 1/4 finals.

Players who beat Federer like Tsonga, Berdych, etc. lost many times to David Ferrer whom Ferrer never won against Federer. So it may sound not right Federer losing to Tsonga.

RF should double his French Open Title next year. He should play more on clay before the French Open.

Always painful watching to lose...but always a privilege to watch you play.

Rest and Roll on Grass court Season....

YOU HAVE MY RESPECT MOST OF THE TIME - KEMNA WAS WRITING ENGLISH - EVERYONE WAS WRITING ENGLISH - WHY ARE YOU WRITING DUTCH TO HER?

WHAT WERE YOU WRITING THAT YOU DIDN'T WANT US TO KNOW?

KEMNA, IF YOU WANT US TO KNOW - PLEASE TRANSLATE - IF THE DUTCH MESSAGE ABUSED YOU, TELL US SO EVERYONE CAN PUNISH THE ABUSER.

SO THOSE WHO ATTACKED/ABUSED/UNFAIRLY CRITICIZED ROGER, TELL ME , ARE YOU STAYING MEMBERS OF THIS FAN CLUB?

WHO'S LEAVING? SPEAK UP NOW , THEN LEAVE.

FIRST OF ALL ROGER I THINK YOU TRIED YOUR BEST, BUT SHOTS YOU USED TO MAKE W/YOUR EYES CLOSED WERE NOT WORKING.

ALL OF YOU - LISTEN UP - LEAVE ALONE FANS SUCH AS KEMNA AND OTHERS WHO SINCERELY LOVE ROG AND STAND BY HIM THROUGH THICK AND THIN.

JUST LEAVE THEM ALONE- DON'T STEP ON THEM.

YOU WANT TO BE JUDAS AND BETRAY ROG AS JUDAS BETRAYED JESUS. THAT'S FINE, GO AHEAD. YOU TOO WILL BE BETRAYED WHEN YOU FAIL - AND I GUARANTEE YOU THAT YOU WILL FAIL AGAIN ONE DAY.

DON'T YOU KNOW THAT?

**KEMNA***

volgende even in het Nederlands

Niemand is tegen Federer of beledigen hem helaas is het feit daar
dat Federer hegomonie in tennis en in de kleedkamers is er niet meer.
Dat is is niet erg en Federer kan aan de weg blijven timmeren zo lang als
hij kan dat is zijn goed recht. Grote prijzen zulllen er niet meer komen
daar is hij niet goed genoeg physiek en conditioneel meer is als 4 jaar geleden.

Some people go to far but it is fair to have questions about his results this year.
Worst start sinds 2000. Most people on this site are only frustrated and dissepointed by this result and the whole year so far.
Including me! He obviously need to work hard and change his attitude.
Hope he makes a statment at wimbledon

Ramcharan,

I know that we have to get use to these kinds of fans, but why are they not thinking about which site they are bashing Roger on?

My God, this is his own site. How will he feel when he reads on his own site how some fans think about him and abuse him.

They will be crawling back when Roger wins and they will be bashing him again when he loses.

Ramcharan,

I agree with you. I know his fans are disappointed, believe me so am I.
I am even a little bit upset with Roger, BUT HE TRIED. Tsonga was just better today and I honestly believe this was not Roger's day. NOTHING worked for him, even shots he can take with his eyes closed, net shots that just did not get over the net. It was honestly not his day. And please, don't see this as an excuse. These things just happen. But I don't like it when fans become nasty and order him to retire.

No laws of physics defying today. A straight sets loss. Straight sets Loss. I hope you are considering going home to do whatever. In interviews positive, healthy, comfortable with ones game, on court unforced errors. I am not understanding. It gets more and more painful. Fodder for JMac. At least quarter final streak remains until the next tournament. You will be rested for Fathers Day.
